20 years ago, the Cartouche glasses were designed as a fresh take on the tea glasses of the Middle East and were decorated with gold-based lustre colours of the highest quality. The jewel-like glasses are a delightful way of offering cool sherbets, even just water, and makes a perfect gift combining beauty with practicality. Cartouche is a French word meaning gun cartridge. It was coined by Napoleons soldiers to describe the oblong bands around the names of Egyptian pharaohs. Material: Glassware with decals and 24 carat gold detailing.
